Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookies

This has been my favourite cookie recipe since I was about six years old. These cookies are chewy and soft and yummy and almost healthy because of the oats. You can read my roommate's description of them here at Breakfast Monkey... just in case you don't believe me that they're yummy.  She totally did beg me to make these multiple times a month, whenever we were supposed to be studying.

Beat together:

  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup margarine
  • 1 cup sugar (or slightly less, I tend to only fill my cup about 3/4 full)
  • 1 tsp vanilla

Add and mix well:

  • 2 cups flour
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp baking soda

Add and hand-mix:

  • 2 cups rolled oats
  • 1-1.5 cups chocolate chips (I usually use 1 cup chocolate, half cup butterscotch or Reese's or white chocolate chips!)

Bake on an ungreased cookie sheet at 350 degrees for 10-12 minutes.  Do not let the cookies get brown!  They should come out soft and they will harden when they cool.  This gives them the chewy, melt-in-your mouth texture that is so desirable.
